The Luann Dummer Center for Women will host a meeting to commemorate the life and legacy of Adrienne Rich (1929-2012) who passed away last March.

English graduate students Melissa Hendrickx and Rachel Macdonald will facilitate the gathering in which participants can bring favorite passages from Rich's works and talk about what that passage meant for them individually and/or for the various communities collectively. The commemoration will include a viewing of video clips that feature Rich's reading of her poems as well. Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to attend and participate in the meeting.

"There is no writer of comparable influence and achievement in so many areas of the contemporary women's movement as the poet and theorist Adrienne Rich. Over the years, hers has become one of the most eloquent, provocative voices on the politics of sexuality, race, language, power, and women's culture." (Deborah Pope, Oxford Companion to Women's Writing in the US)
